    Your tables look as a long curse to me. Do I miss a font to display them well?

    Do you have a suggestion(directions) how to put a table in a blog? Also can you tell me how to put in a hyperlink?

    Go to the post of a Knight with a table.
    Choose /view/source/ in your browser.
    Copy the following html-code:
    It starts with table border="1" to the end of the line.
    (Include the fishhooks, I can't give you the text here alas, because blogger doesn't accept html-tags in comments)

    Go to a new post.
    Choose tab "edit html"
    Paste the html-code.
    Choose tab "compose" again and edit the table to your needs.

    To enter a hyperlink:
    Select a text in your post.
    Push button "link" (the two chains)
    Enter the URL you want to link to.

    thanks tempo . i'll try a table next post.

    Hey, good luck. They say 14 is a lucky number in chess, as even a schmuck like me has trouble losing a game where I have a 14-pt lead in material.

    Isn't it nice to be above 90%?

    If you have problems getting a table to work feel free to email me the size and I'll cook something up. btw - you can always highlight text and choose "Courier" to get a fixed width font. As long as the size is small enough it won't wrap sentences around.

    Thanks for the help on the tables all. I think I can figure it out for my next post.

    as for being above 90% the first 150 for me are the easy ones we will see how i do on the second half.

    Watch out: these next 30 problems or so always kick your ass! Take your time. We want you to hit 90 for L20! (Or in the language of Takchess's Tables of Death, should I say we want "for Set all #Problems all #wrong none %session 100% total%100).

    Sweet! Looks like you smoked some of those that have tripped you up.

    Ahh, New Hampshire's granite and spirit is in my blood. How is the chess world up there?

    Take a deep breath before 330-340. Remember what they did to your percentages last time! :)

    Live or die, free.
